Capturing the essence of a thrilling visual performance, unexpected hybrid musical transitions, minimal choreography & purely soul vibrato vocals, The Weeknd brought down the house at Barclays Center, Brooklyn with his Star Boy Tour. The singer had the honor of having Rae Smmeruda as his opening act, as well as guest artists; Juelz Santana, NAV, Belly and French Montana. From having his fans in the audience knowing every word and even perpetuating their own harmony with the singer, to the roaring screams and applause from beginning to end, Abel had one of the hottest shows in 2017 thus far.
The Candaian-native singer/songwriter released his latest album ‘Star Boy’ in Fall 2016, an 18 track album featuring producers Daft Punk, and other enticing artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Future and Lana Del Rey. None who appeared at the concert, but Abel brought out other guests artists who he has worked with on remixed records this year, like “Unforgettable” with French Montana. Abel kept the crowd thoroughly engaged and up on their, screaming at the top of their lungs to his mesmerizing vocals and stage presence, as well as irresistible viral hit records, that the audience could not hold back from singing along to. Truly captivating the meaning of connecting with fans at a show.
Juelz Santana even made an appearance, performing one of his smash hit records “Oh Boy” having the crowd as hype as possible. Belly also performed one of his smash hits “Might Not Make it”, and NAV concluding the guest star appearance with “Some Way” one of his other hit records that include the Canadian singer/songwriter. Brooklyn will never forget such an iconic moment, infusing the energy and artistry of Toronto with NYC’s concrete jungle, care-free aesthetic, making another historical night for the Barclays Center. Thank you, The Weeknd.
